E. ALS Boat Medic team members, who are not also law enforcement officers, are prohibited from engaging the public, or cause reasoning for the public to view team members as law enforcement personnel when operating on a law enforcement vessel. VI. ALS BOAT MEDIC SCENE OPERATIONS: A. ALS Capacity (meaning the ALS Boat Medic team is the first ALS level personnel arriving at the scene, and has the capability of providing patient transport across water): Kern County Emergency Medical Services Division Page 3

6 1. The ALS Boat Medic Paramedic is expected to assume patient health care authority until a ground transport paramedic arrives. If the ALS Boat Medic team is not operating in conjunction with law enforcement and is the first unit arriving at the scene of an emergency incident involving a multiagency response, the ALS Boat Medic would assume incident commander responsibility until a public safety agency arrives. In medium scale or complex incidents requiring a dedicated person(s) for Medical Group Supervisor for medical group operations, resource use, communications and transportation coordination, patient health care authority shall be delegated to another qualified person at the scene. Refer to the Scene Control Policy for further information. Nothing in this section is intended to supersede the Scene Control Policy. 2. The ALS Boat Medic Paramedic is expected to establish medical control, complete scene and patient assessment and initiate BLS/ALS patient treatment intervention according to Kern County Paramedic Policies and Procedures and Kern County Paramedic Treatment Protocols as the patient condition necessitates. The ALS Boat Medic Paramedic is expected to initially bring necessary medical equipment and supplies to the patient for appropriate overall patient care. B. Patient hand-off procedures: 1. The ALS Boat Medic Paramedic provides patient care and necessary transport of a patient from a body of water to the shore and maintains patient health care authority until a ground transport ambulance arrives and the ALS Boat Medic transfers patient care responsibility to the ALS ambulance Paramedic. The normal focus of the ALS Boat Medic program is to provide immediate care and watercraft transport of an otherwise inaccessible patient to the shore until an ALS ambulance arrives, transfer of patient care responsibility occurs, and the ALS Boat Medic team rapidly becomes available for additional responses or use. 2. The ALS Boat Medic team shall ensure the safety of all EMS personnel responding to the scene for patient transport. It is recommended that ground transport personnel not be allowed to receive patient care responsibility, or provide interventions until the patient is completely off the boat or pier and on the shore. 3. If a BLS ambulance arrives at scene and ALS patient care procedures are indicated, initiated or carried out, the ALS Boat Medic Paramedic must bring necessary equipment and supplies from the boat to manage the patient and attend the patient during transport to an ALS ambulance or the hospital. 4. During a multi-casualty or mass casualty incident, the ALS Boat Medic Paramedic may use a BLS ambulance for patient transport when ALS procedures have been initiated, if an ALS ambulance is not reasonably available, or the patient(s) require rapid transport and the situation mandates that the ALS Boat Medic Paramedic remain at scene to administer ALS level care to additional patients. C. ALS Boat Medic Safety Procedures 1. ALS Boat Medic team shall be required to have in their possession a United States Coast Guard (USCG) approved life jacket at all times while onboard a vessel and on duty. See section IX.C. for required specifications of approved life jackets. ALS Boat Medic team shall be responsible to provide for their safety. 2. All patients and family members shall be required to wear a USCG approved life jacket while on board the ALS Boat Medic vessel or during transport of a patient to an awaiting ground ambulance. Such safety measures are not intended to restrict access to or treatment of a patient, however safety must be a priority. Paramedic judgment shall be used for patients requiring cervical spinal immobilization as to not manipulate the spine or cause further injury to the patient from application of a life jacket. 3. When transferring a patient from a vessel onto the ALS Boat Medic vessel, patients must be properly equipped with a USCG approved life jacket. VII. EMS RESOURCE USE: Kern County Emergency Medical Services Division Page 4

7 A. The ALS Boat Medic team shall be responsible for prudent notification, response and efficient use of all EMS resources in conjunction with the Scene Control Policy. During Med-Alert operations, the ALS Boat Medic team shall coordinate incident communications and resource use through the Medical Group Leader. B. The ALS Boat Medic team shall notify their dispatch center of the appropriate entry point for responding resources and specific instructions to access the rendezvous point for transfer of patient care. VIII. DOCUMENTATION & QUALITY ASSURANCE: A. The ALS Boat Medic Paramedic shall complete an electronic Patient Care Record (epcr) for every prehospital patient contact by the ALS Boat Medic program, in accordance with Division Patient Care Record Policies and Procedures. The epcr completed by the ALS Boat Medic shall be submitted in to the Division according to standard procedure. Submission of an epcr is mandatory regardless of the number of patient contacts per year. B. The ALS Boat Medic provider shall provide ALS Boat Medic pre-event plans, incident reports, related data or ALS Boat Medic program evaluations to the Division upon request. C. The Division shall be notified in advance of any anticipated changes in function of the ALS Boat Medic program and shall monitor the program for operational and medical quality assurance. D. The ALS Boat Medic Provider shall participate in the EMS system-wide quality improvement program, as it is expanded and further developed as requested by the Division. IX. REQUIRED ALS BOAT MEDIC EQUIPMENT & SUPPLIES: A. The ALS Boat Medic Paramedic and ALS Boat Medic Provider shall be responsible to maintain a complete inventory of required ALS Boat Medic equipment and supplies as specified in these policies. B. The ALS Boat Medic vessel must be equipped with at a minimum an ambulance identification sign, one steady red warning lamp, and siren or a law enforcement vessel. C. The ALS Boat Medic Paramedic and ALS Boat Medic Provider shall be responsible for the care and maintenance of all ALS Boat Medic inventory. ALS Boat Medic inventory shall also be subject to inspection by the Division. D. The ALS Boat Medic team shall have a USCG life jacket of type I, II, III or V. Accommodations shall also be made for additional life jackets to be made available for all patients and family members that may be transported by the ALS Boat Medic team. The vessel must also be equipped with a USCG Type IV throwable device. E. The ALS Boat Medic team shall have all of the ALS supplies and equipment listed in Appendix A.
